john kerry. rice is making the rounds on capitol hill these days meeting with lawmakers who are critical of the comments that she made about the terror attack in benghazi that killed four americans. those meetings did not go very well or so it would seem from the comments from senators afterwards. senator kerry seems to be taking a different approach, staying out of the spotlight. asking supporters not to overtly lobby on his behalf. who is likely to get the job? angela mcglowan, fox news political analyst, marjorie clifton a arm toer consultant with the obama campaign and principal with clifton consulting. interesting thing, if there are to be, let's say president obama nominates susan rice and she is said to be his first choice. the guy who leads the hearings on the foreign affairs committee would be senator kerry. >> yeah, no, it is the irony of it all. kerry strategy staying under the radar probably is a good one. the only thing i think would be a barrier to susan rice's nomination would be the benghazi coverage one could argue is pretty unfair given all she did read a u
susan rice and john kerry. you can look at the politics on either way. boy you can't back down on this opposition, on the other hand, is this a fight he wants to have? >> to have a nomination fight over secretary of state is really an unusual and shocking thing. and so, i think that, probably in the end, he doesn't do it. but i do think that it is -- but he, again, he put her in this position and then -- then she gets the opposition and then he says, well, i can't name you. it's unfair. maybe in the end, he realizes that. >> well, i don't think we should link whether or not she -- what happened in benghazi and whether she gets the nomination. i would hate to conclude that the reason she doesn't get that nomination is because of this stuff that just happened. they're not necessarily connected. i just want to -- >> talk radio is just full of benghazi. it is a big issue. >> which is amazing to me. in 1982, we lost 241 marines in lebanon and the country came around president reagan, you didn't see all of this partisan bickering -- >> wait. wait a minute. >> -- we came together and
, and awful these senators have come out and also said that they thought that senator john kerry would sale through the nomination process. now some have speculated that that's because republicans want a chance at that massachusetts senate seat. the bottom line is that the rice nomination could be a bumpy ride, whether the white house wants to have that ride at this moment in the middle of the fiscal cliff, in the middle of everything else, i think is a calculation that they are in the process of going through. martha: it's interesting. we are sort of watching the formation of the second-term cabinet, and you see the goodbye that has come to petraeus and gates and others and you watch how this thing is coming together. we'll see this john kerry and susan rice are too on that team and perhaps hagel as well. we'll let you go and see you tonight on special report. bill: is the president sending a signal on flexibility when it comes to tax rates, or is he holding firm? remember this? >> i also believed everybody should have a fair shot, and everybody should do their their fair share and play by
, which is john kerry. we'll do that after the break. ♪ ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] while you're getting ready for the holidays, we're getting ready for you. tis the season. for food, for family, and now, something extra -- for you. ♪ megyn: and rejoining us now, michael mukasey, former attorney general of the united states. welcome back to you. i want to ask you about this, so her approach at the united nations, do we pin that on her, or do we pin that on her boss, president obama? >> look, to the extent that it's policy, we pin it on her boss because the president sets policy, no doubt about that. and the u.n. secretary, the u.n. ambassador does not. but i think all of this ought to be aired at a hearing so we can find out what it is that the policy was, what it is that was effective/ineffective. so far as showing up at either the vote on the blockade breaking or the netanyahu speech, i can't believe that the president told her not to show up, and if that's the case, then somebody ought to find out about it. megyn: what about the notion that the president is entitled to have the folks he w
candidate, at one point, from hillary clinton to barack obama, from john kerry to john edwards, all of them, they all played for their plan with this simple phrase, "rolling back the bush tax cuts." they've been doing it for eight years. so politically, that's why the president has to draw that line in the sand. >> he draws that line in the sand, but harold ford, what happens when republicans, at least a small number of them, go ahead and raise taxes on the top 2% and then turn to the white house and say, okay. now we'll move. and then they have to talk about how they're going to slash spending in medicare, to save medicare, how they'll have to slash spending in medicaid to save medicaid. their political problem on the other side of this tax debate is so much bigger than the republican problem. they're being too clever by half here. >> both sides have complicated hands. and if the democrats, we achieve what the president and some democrats in the senate are asking for in a narrow way around taxes, you're absolutely right. just as an aside on the bush era, this is the first time we didn't go
